Ate here while we stayed at the Monteagle Inn across the street. Great combo! Had tasty sandwiches and sides for each of us, and everyone loved what they got. Service was fairly quick for a packed restaurant, and worth the wait of about 15 minutes....Will definitely go again. (Heads up though--not open on Sundays.)More

My husband and I were driving back from Nashville to Georgia. I was starving but did not want “fast food” . I found this on trip advisor and said “ why not?!” . Like the other reviews said it was packed in the parking lot...and almost completely full inside at 11:45 am BUT the line moved quickly , there was plenty of table turnover and my husband and I were both happy with our sandwiches. I wish I had time for the Wine slushee or the amazing deserts ! We will try those the next time when we stop ! P.S. my husband had a Reuben on sourdough and I have the goat blat on sourdough and it was great. Also the potato salad was AMAZING !More

I went at 11:30am on a Thursday and it was already halfway full - that's how popular it is. Food was slamming - staff was fast and the murals are a pleasant surprise for this area.

Be warned, the mountain goat market has had a facelift since many of the appealing photos on trip advisor. We planned a trip to Monteagle where we were staying in a treehouse; and, we were looking forward to a nice market experience with good food...and fun shopping, but only got to experience the former. The food was good, but given that it was the main event for our entire Saturday to peruse some of the fun stuff we saw in pics (even if just for a half hour), we were left a bit disappointed. It was super crowded so we ended up taking our food to go. It looked like they will be adding a gift shop, but way smaller than what it used to be from pics. Again, food was good but the experience was a let down.More

Stopped on our way over the Cumberland Plateau on I-24 for some yummy food. Sammies were delish; would recommend choosing a side for the additional $2. The pickle was hiding beneath the sandwich and paper, but we found it at the end of our meal....The new renovation look awesome! Well done! Note: wear your coat inside, it was chilly in the dining area. (The restroom thermostat showed 58* but they had just opened for the day. )More

Good food, easy and fun aesthetic, crowded non-stop, family favorite, great location next to Monteagle Inn and across the street from the Monteagle Assembly gate. You'll have to decide for yourself if the Assembly tween vibe is for you. It clearly is for lots of...them. Reminded me of a neighborhood swim club, except inside, February, and much better pizza (and beer!).More

I was passing through and stopped because of the good reviews. The setup is a little awkward, and the written menu over the counter is nearly illegible-but they had laminated menus as well if you could find one. I ordered a Cuban sandwich with goat...cheese, and it was DELICIOUS. I don’t recommend the potato salad. I took two bites and threw the rest out. It was like a vague potato paste-like someone tried to make a super thick German potato salad and forgot the flavor. The desserts looked delicious and there was a substantial coffee menu, but I didn’t end up trying either because the line was long and I didn’t want to go back through again. The biggest drawback was that it was super crowded with very little seating. Really seems best for off hours or take out, so not a good place to stop if you’re passing through and want to get out of your car for a meal. The pizzas did look good though. So I might stop and get one to go the next time I pass through. The sandwich makes it worth revisiting.More

We eaten at the Mountain Goat Market on several occasions. Every guest that visits us gets the treat of eating there. There's not usually a long wait, but they're always busy. The crew there are very service oriented and are quick to help you out...if you need it. Inside or outside dining is available. For a quiet spot, try the dinning area just inside the main door. Delightful experience Every time. Every item on the menu that I've tried has been a hit.More

We were taking the back roads on a camping trip. The town where we intended to eat seemed "Closed Due to Covid." We continued to Monteagle (which is also just off the interstate highway) and we were glad we did! Our first attempt was at...a BBQ place, but that was closed. The Mountain Goat Market looked more like, well, a market from the outside, so we almost didn't stop--which would have been a HUGE mistake. Great selection of foods to order (to include an awesome sandwich and pizza selection); wonderful desserts in the large, windowed cooler; about 30-feet of cooler space worth of drinks; neat, wood tables made from large spools for overhead wires; and, along the walls, you have a ton of unique items to look and/or purchase. Enjoy . . . we certainly did.More

We've tried to eat at the Mountain Goat a couple of times while visiting Sewanee/Monteagle and finally were able to get in when the usual crowds had subsided. I love the Kale Yeah! and Pickle Pie pizzas. I'm sure their other menu items are just...as good - can't wait for an opportunity to give them a try. Lot's of fun and interesting items in the market, too.More

Sandwich's are wonderful, atmosphere is open wide casual high top tables. Walk up to order your food and grab a table with a number. You can do some shopping for fun gifts while you wait. It's a little gem in this town worth the drive...off the highway if you are hungry for something good and not fast food.More

Excellent! Dog friendly. Good counter service with quick and friendly table delivery. Recommend the BLAT. The food was good, probably the best we had on the trip. They have some good grab and go options to take back to the room as well. Cool setup...with a shop on the outer walls.More
